Jack Behrens opened from under the gun to 250,000 and called after James Barnett three-bet to 600,000 from the button.

Both players checked the {a-Clubs}{a-Diamonds}{8-Hearts} flop. Behrens led out for 250,000 on the {q-Clubs} turn and Barnett raised to 700,000.

Behrens made the call to see the river fall {j-Spades}. Behrens bet 500,000, leaving himself just 600,000 behind, and Barnett went into the tank for several minutes, cutting out the chips to call before deciding to lay his hand down.

Behrens showed {a-Hearts}{a-Spades} for flopped quads and moved up to 2,400,000. Barnett, who had a commanding chip lead a short time ago, fell down to 1,500,000.

Bryan Garrett Eliminated in 5th Place ($8,294)

Bryan Garrett

Bryan Garret raised to 160,000 preflop. James Barnett three-bet to 500,000. Garret called and turned over his cards thinking he had been forced all in. After a brief discussion and agreement that it was a misunderstanding, in a show of good faith, Barnett also turned over his cards and called what was needed to cover the rest of Garret's stack.

Garret had the {q-Spades}{j-Spades} and would need to come from behind against the {a-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}.

The board would not help him though as it ran out the {6-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}{4-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}{7-Spades} and Garret was gone in fifth place.

Chang quickly folded and fell to 1,150,000. Barnett is now up to 3,800,000.

Bobby Schmidt and James Barnett got into a pre-flop raising war that ended with Schmidt all in for his tournament life.

He showed {a-Clubs}{k-Hearts} and needed to win a race against the {j-Clubs}{j-Spades} of Barnett. The {3-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}{2-Spades}{j-Hearts}{10-Diamonds} gave Barnett a set and Schmidt was eliminated in sixth place, earning $6,069.

With that pot, Barnett has taken a commanding chip lead with 3,300,000.

Leo Abbe raised to 225,000 from early position. Chris Minton moved all in from the button.

"I don't like it but I call" said Abbe and turned over the {q-Hearts}{10-Clubs}, which was dominated by the {a-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds} of Minton.

But there was a ten in the window as the flop came the {10-Hearts}{4-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}. The turn was the {7-Hearts} and the rver came the {j-Diamonds}.

The chip stacks were very close and it was counted out to confirm that Minton was covered and gone in seventh place.
